ARRANGING THE LETTERS

To create your words or phrases, there are numerous possibilities. Close together, spaced out, offset, vertically or else at an oblique: it's your call.

To have your letters nicely aligned we recommend you draw lines with a spirit level and calculate the required gaps.

 

FIXING THE LETTERS

Before fixing the letters, remove the protection kraft paper at least from the side to stick. You can remove the other side when you have finished fixing the letters, which will avoid all risk of making the external side of the letters dirty.

Possible methods:

Glue: permanent and very solid. Choose glue that suits wood and your surface, bearing in mind that neoprene and epoxy glues will do the trick. It is essential that the letter, once glued, does not move: in order to achieve this, either fix a batten under the letters (which will maintain them perfectly at the right height during the drying phase), or use an efficient adhesive to maintain the letters in position (beware however not to damage the surface with the adhesive)

Blu-tac or equivalent: perfect if you want a temporary fixing and if your surface does not stain when you remove the blu-tac. Beware, blu-tac can stick to the letters after use. However a light cleaning with white spirit will do. Blu-tac must me placed in small quantities on different parts of each letter for efficient fixing. One last point: blu-tac does not agree with damp areas.

Double-sided sticky tape: always at your DIY store or your creative hobbies stationer's. You will find different widths and more or less strong adhesion. Ask for advice depending on the type of surface you want to fix your letters to.

Double-sided pads (on sale here):in principle designed for outdoor acrylic letters, they can be used for wooden letters. Easy, practical and efficient, this is a very simple solution.
